The Tonawanda School Board approved placing a monument for former varsity football coach Clint Small at Clint Small Stadium during a regular session Tuesday.

The monument, which is in the shape of a gold football three feet tall, will be placed on a platform when displayed. The Tonawanda Booster Club will pay for the monument. The exact location of the Clint Small monument within the stadium has yet to be decided.

Work under way at ex-Flintkote site

LOCKPORT -- Preliminary work on the former Flintkote site has begun and asbestos removal should begin by late October, the Environmental Protection Agency officials told Lowertown residents Tuesday.

A few residents attended a two-hour public availability session in DeWitt Clinton Elementary School.

Kevin M. Matheis, the EPA's on-site coordinator for the $300,000 project, said brush and debris were removed last week and a structural engineer is inspecting the six Mill Street buildings this week, looking for dangerous spots the asbestos removal contractor will have to be warned about.

WRS Infrastructure and Environment, the main contractor, will walk potential asbestos subcontractors through the buildings in the second week of October, leading to bidding and the beginning of work by the end of October.

Removal of asbestos, most of which is wrapped around pipes, is expected to be done by the end of November, Matheis said. The project will clear the way for demolition of the former building materials plant complex, owned by Niagara County because of a property tax foreclosure.
